Summary

The wait for vengeance is over. 

When a man wakes to find himself gripping a dagger and sprawled next to a corpse, what else can he do but board a boat sailing for India? But after five years spent avoiding the hangman’s noose, Hudson Lockhart has returned to England to prove himself innocent of any crime. Suspecting a family member conspired to incriminate him, Lockhart devises a plan to trap the culprit. All he needs now is someone to pretend to be his devoted wife. 

An opportunity too good to miss. 

Since the death of her father, Claudia Darling spends her days managing their dilapidated manor house in Falaura Glen whilst caring for her blind sister. Every day is much like the next until a dark, handsome stranger arrives in the dead of night looking for a place to stay. Claudia’s attempts to discover more about the mysterious gentleman lodging in the coach house leads to an unexpected proposal she cannot refuse. 

Will Claudia throw caution to the wind for a chance to escape the daily drudgery and bring an end to her financial troubles? 

And what of her weak and lonely heart? Can she remain indifferent to the stranger’s charms whilst pretending to be his wife, whilst sharing his bed?

Hudson gets his HEA!

And he is not the only one. This is another great book with a lot of mystery and many twists and turns. It's fast-paced and kept me enthralled 'til the very end. And what an ending it was! Be prepared for a big showdown on a foggy bridge. I love the author's imagination! You think you know who the villain is? Think again. Thank you for the wonderful journey you took us on, Ms. Clee. I just wish there were more books in this series. And let's not forget Liisa Ivary. Her narration is always great.

Good finish to series

This series started with a strong heroine and ended with a strong heroine. There is nothing more refreshing than finding a story with a strong heroine and a confident hero who has faith in the heroine handling business herself...
